ANDEROL Inc. Launches ANDEROL Bio Guard(TM) FRHF Series

East Hanover, NJ (April 12, 2005)- Maintenance professionals can enhance hydraulic system performance, safety, and environmental responsibility with the new ANDEROL Bio GuardTM FRHF. The polyolester-based ANDEROL Bio Guard FRHF series is engineered to offer excellent pumpability and minimize equipment wear and deposit formation under extreme conditions. Ashless and silicon free, ANDEROL Inc. formulated this new fluid to meet stringent industrial lubricant flammability specifications, including Factory Mutual Approval Standard 6930. ANDEROL Bio Guard FRHF is classified as a biodegradable fluid by most internationally recognized standards and should be considered the optimal choice for mining, foundry, iron & steel production, offshore platforms, marine, or any other environmentally sensitive hydraulic system applications.

"The introduction of ANDEROL Bio Guard FRHF marks the company's continuing commitment to manufacture high performance lubricants that are user friendly and environmentally conscientious."

The new lubricant offers maintenance professionals piece of mind with regards to pump performance - passing the Vickers 35VQ 25A and Vickers 104C pump tests. With a fire point above 360ºC and an Autogenous Ignition Temperature (AIT) above 420ºC, this product provides customers a level of safety for high temperature hydraulic applications. These features provide a fluid life three to four times longer than competitive mineral oil-based products.

This new lubricant series is formulated with ashless additive chemistries and meets the most internationally recognized biodegradability standards. With low aquatic toxicity, this environmentally friendly fluid also minimizes effects on surrounding wildlife.
